, but i personally support obama, or something odd like that. people will have to look that up, and they will. and of course, another thing with people who have never run for office, they're going to be subjected to a new level of scrutiny. >> yeah. >> his personal finances, his personal -- you know, his personal life and so on and so forth. so all that is going to have to hold. and then the final question, can he campaign? >> well, that depends on how hard he wants to work. but he is going the al franken route. he's got the radio show all squared away early on. meanwhile, in other senate news, polling earlier this week had former senator scott brown of massachusetts actually leading democratic congressman ed markey in a hypothetical matchup to fill john kerry's senate seat. but earlier today, brown announced that he won't be entering the special election race, paving a clear path to victory for the democrats. he said something pretty interesting. "i was not at all certain that a third senate campaign in less than four years and the prospect of returning to a congress even more
. for president obama this is something different. this is something altogether different, but i would say this, the american people are generally -- lou: you will say this eventually. >> eventually, quite. after i talk about the dog again. the truth is, the american people are smarter than their politicians and politics and know that the problem that we have, this epidemic of mass shootings, random mass shootings is not just about guns but a sick society, a sick culture, fatherlessness and broken this in all this other stuff that cannot be fixed. there is no panacea answer to this command that is white as the president drags this out through, as steve accurately described, a senate that will not be eager to embrace and control the further we get away daughter will be for democrats to push. lou: and the other initiative on the part of the president that he has made a priority, of course, back with comprehensive immigration reform. is there the appetite for this? standing tall as the leading conservative in the gain of eight. but what is the appetite in the senate for comprehensive immigration r
didn't read the bill. every time obama comes -- president obama comes out with something, they just back it no matter what, and all of a sudden they have an oops moment 'cause they realized oh, my costs go up, so please help me. i think the bottom line, they'll end up with some sort of exemption, some sort of subsidy and guess what? it will be on our backs as usual. >> i know, but it's kind of interesting, dagen, maybe expecting quid pro quo didn't happen. >> to gary's point, if they get these subsidies on top of -- these members already having health insurance, that just opens the door for handouts to anybody. will ultimately drive up the cost of this health care law even more. listen, this law was about expanding health insurance to people who didn't have it. well, union members, you have it. your costs go up. suck it up. that's the way it goes [ laughter ] >> you like that one, huh? >> charlie, they've got -- to dagen's point, they qualify for breaks -- >> it's kind of absurdity of the health care law in the first place that there is all these sort of outs, you can get an out if
's something mrs. obama is not telling us, this is really a moot point. he's not going to have a son, this is not going to be an issue. however, this is america's game. we do have two brothers here competing as head coaches in the super bowl because their father got them into this sport. now so many parents around the country are wondering, is it safe for my kid to play football? roger goodell today answered the president's words. while he welcomed the president's interest in this and while he wants to make the game safer, his own time playing as a youth is something he wouldn't give up and he brought up some of the things the nfl is trying to do to try to make the game safer, talking about bringing in independent neurologists who aren't associated with the team and they will tell players whether they think they should go back into the game. he also talked about the idea of increasing the fines and suspensions for the kinds of hits and acts on the field that are going to be causing some of those issues. i have to tell you, there is controversy out there. the players don't think the m
. not even the obama phenomenon matches the enthusiasm here. could something change? of course. remember, it's not really three years. if she wants to make a decision, she has to make a decision by next spring, spring of '14. if she makes that decision, she by and large preempts the democratic field. >> what would you do if you were talking? you'll probably be talking off and on. what do you tell joe biden he should do between now and then to be prepared to run but be prepared to hit the parachute if she does run? how do you hit both? >> he goes at it like he's going to be candidate because i tlink's still a decent chance hillary will denied not to run. i won't bet on it but i think there's a decent chance. joe should continue to make contact, talk to givers. the problem for joe is -- and people do love and respect joe. i'm in that category. but the givers, the people who are going to decide who really is the most powerful candidate, they're all like joe, but they're all for hillary right now. that's his biggest problem. >> and that's men and women both, right? >> men and women both. >> let
have made. >> jon: let me read you something. most americans are cheering for them, meaning the obama and clinton and most americans wanted a softball interview. we have thus passed an important important tal. democrats are the regular guys, and conservatives are the weirdos. >> i think that is right. think if you were to check with people, they didn't think it was the moment to put the president and mrs. clinton on the grill with regard to foreign policy. they know what those people stand for. it is striking that the questions were softball. it was a love fest. i don't have any question about that. i will say this. news management in washington is do for everybody. i think back with mike with president reagan and the idea that they are not going to get answers to certain questions, with politicians, that is what they want. >> jon: we know you served as press spokesman, would 60 minutes have done that kind of interview with any of your bosses? >> no way. here is the missed opportunity. when you have the president of united states and secretary of state you have to corner them. you hav
for obama library. here it is on something called newsmax. reagan's childhood home to become parking lot for obama library. really? is this really happening? >> no, no. this is really not happening. i mean, in the evidence-free right-wing world, it is true, and they all link to each other. but nowhere else is it true, including in the actual world. but the actual world is not their world. when that reporting is the supposedly straight news from fox news, when the senate foreign relations committee sends its republican members to world net daily to go talk about foreign policy ideas, this is their world. this is not the fringe. this is where they live. governing the united states is a really hard job. representing the united states in the world is a really, really hard job. today john kerry was officially sworn in to take over that job from hillary clinton. and he got to what amounts from a really well informed warning from his predecessor about the difficulties of that job. the evidence-based world is a hard enough place to live and to operate for us as a nation without half of our domes
is that congress of agricultural markets. the obama administration promised to do something about livestock consolidation when the president ran the first time and they chickened out. we need to keep the pressure on them to really take this issue seriously and all of us who are well-educated need to try to start talking about it because nobody talks about the consolidation. it is rampant in every industry. i rent a lot of cars because i travel all over the country. there are two chains. they have different names. two chains. they doubled prices in the last few years. it is not just food. is something we need to do to have a better society. the day. i didn't see you. >> you talked about the regional food system but could you tell us what your vision for that is? i imagine co-op's mixed with farmers' markets. what will that look-alike? >> it depends on the region. i found out when i was writing "foodopoly" that until 30 years ago montana, i guess was 40 years ago, montana was completely self-sufficient. they had their own processing plant. they grew the vegetables in cans locally. it depends
anyone that barack obama nominates. and the surge was something that was his. i think that almost in a way john mccain made the surge into the war as john mccain would have fought it as commander-in-chief, and anyone who questions it gets the wrath of mccain. and i watched that hearing or that part of the hearing with colonel jack jacobs and patrick murphy, the former congressman of pennsylvania that served in iraq. both of those guys have been at the bottom of the pile, as jack jacobs calls it, like hagel and mccain, you just view war differently. but the lesson these two men took from vietnam seems to be so different. hagel took the questioning, the same thing patrick murphy feels, being lied to and knowing that anger that your friends died for what you believe to be a lie. mccain seems to have taken something different from it. >> we're all different. here is chuck hagel in vietnam back in '68 when he went in. he was an enlisted soldier and rose to sergeant. a noncommissioned officer with the infantry, a grunt as they used to say in vietnam. this is navy pilot john mccain with
out that president obama's judgment on want appointments and jack lew as treasury secretary . they are bad. >> you said something earlier that you said. republicans on the right side but going about it the wrong way. >> you live by the sword and you die by the sword. harry reid started this. >> starsted what? >> thatismerary -- tempory process. it is the risk they run when they play these kinds of gamings. >> not a usual position for rick. now to eric with what is coming up on cashin? >> wait until you hear the new excuse for spending taking hold in washington. cash in is on in the bottom of the hour. >> first on forbes. did you ever want to know what your coworkers make? many companies are clicking and letting you find out. some on the forbes' group are saying show me the money. that flip side is coming up next. hi, i just switched jobs, and i want to roll over my old 401(k) into a fidelity a. man: okay, no problem. it's easy to get started; i can help you with the paperwork. um...ts green line just appeared on my floor. yeah, that's fidelity helping you reach your financia
president obama would probably lose that competition, noting skeet shooting is not something he's done his entire life. lester? >> all right. kristen, thank you. >>> in alabama tonight a man with a gun continues to hold a little boy hostage in an underground bunker after allegedly shooting to death the driver of the school bus the boy was on four days ago. nbc's gabe gutierrez is in midland city, alabama with that story. gabe, good evening. >> reporter: lester, so far this standoff has lasted more than 97 hours and there's no end in sight. just up the road behind me police say the suspect has a heater, blankets, and plenty of supplies in that bunker. the delicate and tense standoff has police here in southeastern alabama on edge. s.w.a.t. teams and hostage negotiators focused on an underground bunker, where police say jimmy lee dice has held a 5-year-old boy for more than four days. >> i want to thank him for taking care of our child. >> reporter: police are choosing words carefully as they talk with him through a ventilation pipe attached to the bunker. they would not say whether he's mak
or a restaurant or something, and you have more than 50 employees, you still under the obama care unless you get a waiver you have to provide for contraception even if it violates your religious beliefs at least that is how i read it. >> and if that is the case we will have a lot of unhappy people. religious institutions will be out of it. again, this is part of the broader topic that you raised which is the government attempting to step in it and dictate to people in their lives and we always have government playing a role in peoplele's lives. it is a question of how expansive it is. individuals you need to purchase insurance or you get fined. small businesses need to provide insurance that looks like this and is far more expensive than you are now laying out for premium support for the employees. people see this as an erosion of their freedom to make decisions on their own and when you add in things like gun control and the ly if you areon's regulatory running a business you think the government is stepping into your life way too much. >> the other interesting aspect at least with first blush
program is something that has been, the bush administration and the obama administration say are authorized by the authorization of use for military force that was passed by congress. and the way that the obama administration is using that is that they're dropping bombs, targeting for killing of terrorist suspects in countries in which we are not at war, including yemen, including pakistan, including places in africa. there is no legal authority for these types of drone attacks. the u.s. cannot drop bombs on people in places that they cannot send troops. it is a mechanism, i think in my view, a political mechanism that says, "it is so much easier to talk about how the wars are over and we're bringing troops home and that we're not putting more troops in harm's way by dropping bombs" there's no legal authority for that. there's no judicial oversight for how they determine who they're going to kill and who they don't want to kill. there's a -- right after 9/11, there was this kill list, there were approximately nine people, al qaeda operatives that the military, the c.i.a. said
size you needed to move the needle on g.d.p. the obama folks came in and they did something bigger and they did that because the macro picture was far worse. the additional infrastructure spending and the government spending is too small and too slow if you buy into the idea that more government spending is going to give a short-term g.d.p. kick then they this r not doing enough of it. i would not do that set of policies. if you want to do the short-term kick you have to do something that is several times larger. say we're going to increase highway spending isn't going to give you the short-term kick. i also think with a republican house that you're going to get significant i will increased government spending in any context. i think those are two separate questions. i think it is unfeasible and if it was i don't think it is enough to move the g.d.p. needle enough to make a significant impact. >> what moves the needle? >> i don't think there is much in terms of government actions. i will surprise people here. i'm concerned about the drags that continue to be imposed on the private
't -- >> and after obama care it's going up more. >> it hasn't been implemented yet. but once you do something to control the cost, you can actually do something that can make it easier for more people to get access to it. it will help to make it easier for the insurance companies to provide coverage because they'll have more people who -- >> but every time you do that -- every time you control the cost it seems to get more expensive. >> it's not just religious institutions. look. if somebody owns a business, a family-run business, they own a business and they have a moral or religious opposition to contraception. okay? why should they have to deal with this mandate? there's nothing in this hhs thing that's changed that. you own a business. leave the church alone. you still have to pay the mandate for the contraception that you don't believe in. >> but this is -- >> businesses don't get an opt-out. >> they're completely excluded. >> that violates religious freedom. >> there's no constitutional imperative about businesses having to make their own decisions about which laws they're going to comp
is president obama really cares about the deficit. if there is something he noticed in the first two years when the economic crisis had to be front and center, the thing he wanted to deal with was the long-run deficit. the idea that he went on a spending binge if you don't make threats like that is crazy. the evidence is there that he put spending cuts on the table. he asked them for them to be paired with tax increases as well. there is more good will than people realize. more agreement that we have such a big budget problem that will we're going to fire on all cylinders. we have to cut spending. frankly, we have raise more revenue. >> you're listening to the california program and our speakers are economic experts. we are discussing national, regional, and global economic challenges. you can find video online. there's a series of questions around employment and job growth. what what is your outlook on job growth? >> i will start. i think -- i will say i was here last year and i'm more optimistic this year than last year. we made a significant amount of progress. it looks like housing prices h
